Repeated observations

Knowledge in science is built upon observations. These observations may be largely qualitative in nature at the original or exploratory stage of a study, but attempts are usually made to represent them in the form of quantitative data at some later stage. It is important that experimental information should be collected and catalogued in an orderly fashion and in a form readily understood by others: ideas may be more readily extracted, and conclusions more readily drawn from data which have been organized into a coherent pattern.
